Changing the user interface at a telecommunications terminal


A technique is disclosed that changes one or more properties of a user interface at a telecommunications terminal based on an incoming call. When a first caller calls the telephone number of the terminal directly and the terminal answers the call, the terminal presents the direct call to the user through a first user interface. When a second caller calls a telephone number that is associated with a data-processing system and the call is then redirected to the terminal, the terminal presents the redirected call to the user through a second user interface. The telecommunications terminal can be a cell phone that belongs to a user, and the data-processing system can be a private branch exchange that serves an office enterprise network that the user belongs to, wherein the private branch exchange extends the call to the user's cell phone when the user is out of the office.

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to telecommunications in general, and, more particularly, to changing the user interface at a telecommunications terminal.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

FIG. 1 depicts a schematic diagram of a telecommunications system in the prior art. Telecommunications system 100 comprises:

i. the Public Switched Telephone Network,

ii. private branch exchange 102,

iii. telecommunications terminals 103-1 and 103-2,

iv. telecommunications terminals 110-1 and 110-2, and

v.; telecommunications terminal 111; all of which are interconnected as shown.

The Public Switched Telephone Network (i.e., element 101) is a complex of telecommunications equipment that is owned and operated by different entities throughout the World. In the United States of America, for example, the Public Switched Telephone Network (or “PSTN”) comprises an address space that is defined by ten digits, and, therefore, comprises 10 billion unique addresses or “telephone numbers.” The Public Switched Telephone Networks in other countries are similar.

The Public Switched Telephone Network provides telecommunications service to telecommunications terminals 110-1, 110-2, and 111. Telecommunications terminals 110-1, 110-2, and 111 can be either wireline terminals or wireless terminals, or a combination of both.

Private branch exchange 102 is capable of switching incoming calls (e.g., from terminal 111, etc.) from the Public Switched Telephone Network via one or more transmission lines to terminals 103-1 and 103-2. Private branch exchange 102 is also capable of handling outgoing calls from terminals 103-1 and 103-2 to the Public Switched Telephone Network via one or more transmission lines.

Private branch exchange 102 is capable of also extending an incoming call (e.g., from terminal 111, etc.) to a telephone number of an “off-premises” terminal in the Public Switched Telephone Network, in addition to switching the same incoming call to an “on-premises terminal” within the enterprise area (e.g., an office building, etc.) that is served by exchange 102. Terminals 103-1 and 103-2 are considered to be on-premises terminals with respect to private branch exchange 102, while terminals 110-1 and 110-2 are considered to be off-premises terminals.

To accomplish the switching of an incoming, enterprise-related call to one of on-premises terminals 103-1 and 103-2, and the extending of the call to one of off-premises terminals 110-1 and 110-2, private branch exchange 102 maintains a table that correlates the off-premises telephone number to the on-premises, private branch exchange (PBX) extension. Table 1 depicts a table that illustrates the correlation.
